Egypt: Amnesty International concerns: Law on associations
Amnesty International presents this analysis and recommendations on the draft law on associations, based on Egypt’s international human rights obligations. Some amendments have been introduced to earlier drafts commented on by Amnesty International. However, the organization is concerned that draft law, continues to retain provisions inconsistent with Egypt’s international obligations in relation to freedom of association and freedom of expression. If passed, the legislation would give the authorities wide powers that could be used to violate these rights in practice.
